TENORM Copper Mining and Production WastesRadiation

Sep 14, 2021 · During in-situ leaching, rather than removing soil and rock to reach copper deposits, acids are injected into ore bodies via wells. The PLS is captured in production wells and pumped to a leach plant where the copper is later recovered. High levels of TENORM have been found in the PLS of two in-situ leach operations in Arizona.

The leaching and adsorption behaviour of gold ores

from the dissociation of the complex is used to leach gold from the ore. The stepwise dissociation of cyanide from copper-cyanide complexes can also be used to leach gold from a variety of oxide and sulphide ores. The copper cyanide's fourth ligand readily dissociates at low cyanide concentrations for use in gold leaching.

Copper Mining and Production Processes Explained

Copper ores. An ore is a rock containing enough valuable mineral to make it worth extracting. In the case of copper, it is worth extracting when there is about 2 kg of copper per 1,000 kg of ore (0.2%). Copper minerals are found in over one hundred varieties, although only a few have been worked for copper on a large scale.

How can you increase the copper recovery of your SX-EW

Heap leaching is the method most commonly chosen for copper recovery from oxide ores. An acidic solution is used to leach the metal, dissolving the copper into what is referred to as a pregnant leach solution (PLS).This solution is collected and purified by solvent extraction (SX).

Therefore, if the ore has 40 g/t of cyanide-soluble copper, then the minimum quantity of cyanide required for copper leaching is 0.1 kg NaCN/t. If the quantity of copper extracted increases to 300 g/t then the cyanide requirement increases to 0.7 kg NaCN/t. Viewed another way, since the 3 moles of cyanide that are complexed with each mole of
